Petition to Restrict Abortion Certified By State Board of Canvassers

Thursday, December 5, 2013

The state Board of Canvassers has certified a voter-initiated petition that would put new restrictions on abortion insurance coverage in Michigan. The proposal would ban abortion coverage in standard health insurance plans. Women would only be able to purchase abortion coverage as a separate rider. The measure now goes to the state Legislature, which has 40 days to pass it. If not, it will go to voters on the 2014 ballot. Director of Public information for Right to Life of Michigan, Pamela Sherstad talks to the Craig Fahle Show about new petition that could restrict abortions in the state.
